Join us as we continue to explore the Anthropocene and tackle the complex story behind the rise of antibiotic resistance. Laura Kahn, author, MD, and public health specialist, shares with us her research, from over six years of work, which is bringing insight into the rise of antimicrobial resistance. Her talk will look at the differing perspectives—from doctors and farmers—and the politics that have led to where we are today. Her talk will draw upon her new book "One Health and the Politics of Microbial Resistance" and she will offer thoughts on what we could do going forward.
